Stumbled across this place and decided to eat here. Nice food, clean, but service virtually non-existent.

We ate here one evening and were not disappointed. We went in without a reservation but that was not a problem. A table was quickly found for us and English language menus provided without having to ask! The food was delicious. Can recommend the pasta with mussels and chorizo - fantastic flavours. Strongly recommended.

This hotel had been recommended by our hotel. It was very easy to find and had a certain charm about it. They also had some regional specialties, which we really like. This particular night, we each chose rabbit and it was really delicious. We also had desserts but the rabbit was the standout. The staff were very helpful too, coping... More

Situated in the city centre at walking distance from the Opera house, this restaurants offers a very nice ambiance for a good dinner with your loved ones or even for business. Nice, friendly and professional staff. We felt very welcome. We had a good steak, perfectly cooked, and a nice fresh salad. It is a pity that also l'orange Bleue... More

Went there for a business dinner with a large international group (>25) and everybody was extremely pleased. Excellent atmosphere, attentive service and a perfect place to taste something out of the ordinary. The dishes are very good and classy, a perfect way to create a great first impression. I highly recommend it.

We visited this restaurant on 2 occasions. First to check it out, and then when we ate with friends on a weekend away. The table for 6 was well positioned and not cramped. Both times the service was good without being intrusive. The menu, in English or French, offered a wide choice of regional dishes, as well as Classic French... More

I was a little worried with some of the reviews but this was perfect! Food great, service attentive. Expensive but what do you expect if staying at a true 5*?! Would definitely return.

We had a really good meal here, both having the waterzooi de poisson. The restaurant is down a quiet street but very close to the centre of Lille, in a beautiful old building. The service was good and all in all a good choice for a meal out in Lille.

Came here on last of three nights in Lille and had by far the best meal of our stay. I ordered Kir and had the choice of it being made with Cassis, Peche, Mure or Framboise. Framboise was delicious. Excellent smoked herring tartare starter and very tasty carbonnade de boeuf main course. My dessert was lemon sorbet drenched in gin... More
